What makes an extraordinary film?

24 Feb

What makes an extra-ordinary film? Here are some things I jotted down in that regard:

1) characters you can connect with or care about
2) drama/conflict/narrative/surprise/adventure/mystery
3) experience/immersive/epic
4) rings true/authenticity/believable (excluding cartoon or fantasy)
5) colorful/themed tapestry
6) energy/movement
7) theme/meaning/purpose
8] involvement/engagement
9) WIFM/hook
10) entertainment
11) timing

I’m curious how to take into account smaller tactics like party and celebration

Next up perhaps: types of film, types of stories, types of characters, paradoxes of film….
